A Christmas Carol in Special Collections
Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol, In Prose: Being a Ghost Story of Christmas has become a holiday classic. The story of a miser who is shown the error of his ways through supernatural intervention has resonated with audiences since its publication in 1843. The popularity of the story of Scrooge and his spectral visitors has led to many different renderings of the text by various illustrators, movie adaptations, and other interpretations of Dickens's original story. On display in Special Collections are four editions of A Christmas Carol,  including the first edition, all with illustrations by different artists.
